Welcome to the Vietnam Viral Hepatitis Alliance

Dedicated to viral hepatitis initiatives in Vietnam


Vietnam, with a population of nearly 97 million, has one of the largest viral hepatitis disease burdens in the region and worldwide. In 2017, WHO Vietnam Office and Vietnam Ministry of Health estimated that eight million (8.4%) people in Vietnam are chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers [1].


The Vietnam Viral Hepatitis Alliance (V-VHA) was established in December 2014 in the USA and received its 501(c)3 tax-exempt public charity status in June 2015. In July 2017, V-VHA was granted an international non-government organization (NGO) status by Vietnam’s Department of State.

V-VHA recognizes the cooperation and generous support of all who have shared our mission and program goals since we began our journey in 2014.


V-VHA envisions Vietnam being free of viral hepatitis.


The mission of V-VHA is to stimulate and facilitate the design, funding, and collaborative implementation of high-impact public health initiatives in Vietnam to deal decisively with the huge and pressing problems of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV).

V-VHA envisions Vietnam being free of viral hepatitis.
